Does anyone know if Ruger Police Carbines are kosher in Cook Cty? I know AR's and the like aren't...

Also, what absurdities am I going to have to endure in order to register firearms in Chicago proper?
Does anyone know of any clubs in Chicagoland outside of the city that rent storage facilities to for us poor bastards who are trapped in The Peoples Republic of Daleystan?

Can't we talk you out of moving into Shicago proper? You do know that Illinois has one of the best transit systems around. Almost every suburb around Chicago has Amtrac trains that go into the city.

For storage, Gun World here in Bensenville I think has the best deal. I believe it's a $100 for the year with no limit on the number of guns.

Leaving out NFA weapons, I don't think Cook County (not Shitcago) has ever prosecuted someone for violating the AWB only. It's usually a tack on charge. Like they find you beating the hell out of your wife or dealing crack out of your house and find your AK. They will tack that on to the other charges.

I believe handgun ammo is illegal in Shitcago or most likely they would refuse your registration.

Registration is a PIA, (need to send photo & have notarized), but you should have no problem registering a Ruger PC carbine. There is no absolute ban on handgun ammunition in Chicago, EXCEPT that you need to have a registration for a carbine/rifle in that caliber. You can't register a handgun uless you are LE.

As long as the mag cap is 12 or less, it is NOT considered "assault ammunition" (politico idiots define the mag as "ammunition") . That section says you can't BUY handgun ammo INSIDE the city limits, but says nothing about buying it elsewhere. (The same applys to spraypaint, which can't be sold in Chicago).

How about 37MM?

Just picked up one of these Federal Labs launchers

Any Daleystan rules against these?

I'm not sure.

But since it would still qualify as a "firearm", I would think it would have to be registered:



8-20-030 Definitions.
As used in this Title 8:
* * *
(f) "Firearm" means any weapon which will, or is designed to or restored to, expel a projectile or projectiles by the action of any explosive; the frame or receiver of any such device; or any firearm muffler or silencer. Provided, that such term shall not include:
(1) antique firearm;
(2) any device used exclusively for line-throwing, signaling, or safety and required or recommended by the United States Coast Guard or Interstate Commerce Commission; or
(3) any device used exclusively for firing explosives, rivets, stud cartridges, or any similar industrial ammunition incapable of use as a weapon.



Given that Chicago restricts pellet guns and utility knives, I would doubt they would allow you to register 37 MM. But you could always call and ask! (Just don't give your name and be calling from a payphone so you can high-tail it out of the area before the SWAT team arrives).

Edited to add:

Can I own a gun in the City of Chicago?
As a private citizen, you can own a long gun, but not a handgun or an assault weapon, in the City of Chicago. You must have a current Firearm Owner's Identification (FOID) card from the Illinois State Police, and you must register your firearms with the City's Gun Registration Program, 3510 S. Michigan Avenue, Room 1027 SE, between the hours of 7:30 am and 4:30 pm. You can call the Gun Registration Program at (312) 745-5166 for more information.

I see the letters "NFA" in your photo--letters which are absolutely prohibited from private ownership in Illinois, along with CCW.

You sure you want to move?

Re-Fixed Amtrak runs north, west, southwest, south, and southeast out of Chicago.

P.S. There is nothing "proper" about Chicago.

Apparenty .40 and 10mm are fair game.

Yeah, definitely.
I'm sure I won't want to stay very long, but I do want to live there for a time.
The fun toys can stay at home for the time being.

I'll register a Ruger Police Carbine, block the mags to 12 rounds and make due with it while i'm there.

It's a good thing.
If the day ever comes where i'm demanded to hand over all of my firearms by the government based on my 4473's, i'll be able to prove that I lived in a city that forbid most of them, thus supporting the claim that I sold all of them before I left.
